About Personalized Learning
strongly believe that personalized learning has to be the way for our children
to be educated. That’s why we are pleased to invite you to become a member of
the AASA Superintendents Personalized Learning Cohort and Certification program.
Since our inaugural AASA Superintendent’s Summit in Park City, Utah
(October 2015), we have been active in many areas related to personalized learning.
As part of our review and planning, the need has become very clear to create a
community of leading superintendents to head the nationwide movement.
For the AASA Superintendents Personalized Learning Cohort and Certification
program, we want to bring together visionary leaders who
are starting or already doing the work of personalized learning. There are
opportunities for you to engage in research studies and stories in the media,
as well as host critical visits from other districts wanting to begin the
journey of personalized learning.
In 2016, we held meetings in Salt Lake City, Utah
and Vista, Calif. During
these meetings, we focused on learning and growing with an eye towards working
as critical friends as action is taken back in your district. Taking an
active role with your colleagues towards an AASA Personalized Learning
Certificate is an essential part of this new Cohort. Our next meeting will be held in Herndon, Va.,
March 29 – 31.
Membership in the Cohort is limited to about 40 – 50 superintendents. A
membership fee of $1,500 will cover core expenses. Your travel and hotel costs
will be covered by AASA at the two annual meetings.
Additionally, as a member of the AASA Superintendents Personalized Learning Cohort
and Certification program you will be able to bring critical team members from
your district to the Summits at no extra cost, except travel expenses.
Complete the following application, which requires basic information about you and your district. In addition to this application, please include a cover letter, which explains why you would like to become a member.
As we draw to the end of the first year of the Personalized Learning Cohort and Certification program, we are looking to expand our base of districts involved as we create a movement in education and move towards a tipping point. Joining the cohort for the March meeting is an exciting opportunity to work with colleagues from across the country to help shape this movement, and to contribute to the national conversation about moving our schools ahead.
